Celebrating Healthy West Virginia Community Recognition Benchmarks
Leveraging these benchmarks to evaluate progress and set priorities makes your community a better place to live, learn, work, eat, and play. By improving quality of life, you’re helping to reduce healthcare costs, improve resilience, and make your community more attractive to people and businesses.
Why does achieving these benchmarks matter?
These benchmarks are rooted in current health and wellness goals. They improve our citizens, attract a healthier workforce, and contribute to building more attractive and resilient communities. Celebrating Healthy West Virginia encourages the implementation of policies, programs, and activities that not only positively impact community residents, but also create an inviting environment for people working in and visiting your community.
The Celebrating Healthy West Virginia recognition program has three scored levels: Gold, Silver, and Bronze.
In addition to these scored levels, each year CHWV honors communities with special recognitions for areas of impressive progress, innovative programs, and inspiring ideas.
Will your community be this year’s Trailblazer, Food Systems Super Star, or Health Equity Champion?
